General Information 


Catholic Theological Union was founded in 1967 as a creative response 
to the call sounded by Vatican II for a renewed theological education for 
priesthood. Three religious orders originally sponsored the school: the 
Franciscans of Sacred Heart Province, the Servites of the Eastern U.S. 
Province, and the Passionists of Holy Cross Province. The school was 
granted corporate status by the State of Illinois in November, 1967. Classes 
began in the fall quarter of 1968, with a faculty of 24 and an enrollment of 
108. In January, 1972, Catholic Theological Union was accredited by the 
American Association of Theological Schools. The North Central 
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools granted accreditation in 
March, 1972. 

Since its founding, other religious communities have designated 
Catholic Theological Union as their official theologate: the Augustinians 
(1968), the Norbertines (1968) the Society of the Precious Blood (1969), 
the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart (1969), the Society of the Divine Word 
(1970), the Congregation of the Holy Ghost (1971), the Claretians (1972), 
the Viatorians (1982), the Xaverian Missionaries (1973), The Crosiers 
(1974), the Comboni Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus (1976), the Pon- 
tifical Institute for Foreign Missions (1976), the St. Nicholas Diocese in 
Chicago for Ukrainian Catholics (1978), the Sacred Heart Fathers and 
Brothers (1979), the Assumption Province of the Franciscans (1980), the 

Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament (1980), the St. Paul of the Cross 
Province of the Passionists (1981), the Capuchins (1982), the St. John the 
Baptist Province of the Franciscans (1983), the Society of St. Columban 
(1984), the Redemptorist Fathers and Brothers (1984), the Missionary 
Oblates of Mary Immaculate (1985), and the Western Province of the 
Congregation of the Holy Ghost (1985). 

Catholic Theological Union is unique among schools of theology and 
seminaries. It is not a coalition of independent schools. Rather, the 
participating orders have closed their individual theologates and merged 
their resources into one school, with one administration and faculty. 
Control is vested in the Board of Trustees. The school has the advantage of 
unity of administration and breadth of tradition and support and has been 
accepted by its peers in the world of theological education. 

Catholic Theological Union is now the largest Roman Catholic school of 
theology in the United States, serving twenty-seven provinces and abbeys of 
religious men as an official theologate. It also serves other students, lay and 
religious, in the preparation for ministry. One out of every six religious 
priesthood candidates in the United States is trained at Catholic 
Theological Union. 

There is a living sense of purpose which guides a school more effectively 
than any written statement. From the very beginning, it was understood 
that Catholic Theological Union would be a school for ministry. Theology 
would be directed to practice. The by-laws concisely stated this objective: 
to train and teach aspirants to the Roman Catholic priesthood so that they 
may be fully qualified to meet the requirements of such priesthood. 

As a school grows, a periodic review of its purposes is necessary. In 1980, 
Catholic Theological Union reviewed its goals and adopted a new Mission 

Catholic Theological Union at Chicago is a school of ministry in the Roman Catholic 
tradition, begun in 1968 by a number of religious communities of men who combined 
resources in order to educate more creatively for priesthood. Today that founding vision 
embraces preparation for many forms of public ministry in the Church from ordained 
priesthood to lay ministries. Catholic Theological Union accepts qualified men and women 
who show vocational commitment and seek graduate ministerial education. 

The community life of the school reflects the influence of the religious institutes which 
founded and sponsor the school. Thus inclusion, mutuality and participation mark the ec- 
clesial context of the entire educational program. Within this context students live, grow and 
experience formation in faith and ministry. It also provides the impetus for the school's strong 
emphasis on mission, justice, and the cross-cultural dynamics of ministry in the modern world 
and in a global church. Membership in the Association of Chicago Theological Schools and 
cooperation with the Divinity School of the University of Chicago offer opportunities for 
ecumenical participation in the preparation for ministry and for academic research in 

Catholic Theological Union possesses a rich variety of academic and pastoral resources. 
These enable it to educate capable ministers for the present and future church. 

The central focus of Catholic Theological Union is the priesthood 
candidate. In the spirit of the Program of Priestly Formation, the school 
has adapted its programs to the present needs of Church and society. 
Today, such adaptation involves an additional commitment to education 

for the wide variety of ministries emeging in the church, for women and 
men, religious and l^y, as well as continuing education for those already 
involved in ministry, both ordained and non-ordained. One third of 
Catholic Theological Union's current students are among those preparing 
for such ministries or are in programs of continuing education for their 
current ministries. 


Catholic Theological Union is located in Hyde Park on Chicago's south 
side. This is a cosmopolitan, stably integrated community, with a strong 
sense of identity. Within walking distance are shopping centers, theatres, 
restaurants, churches, parks, the Lake Michigan beaches and the Museum 
of Science and Industry. Downtown Chicago is fifteen minutes away by car 
or rapid transit. More importantly. Catholic Theological Union is close to 
the Divinity School of the University of Chicago and to several schools of 
theology in the area: Chicago Theological Seminary, Lutheran School of 
Theology, Meadville/Lombard Theological School, and McCormick 
Theological Seminary. 


Catholic Theological Union occupies two buildings on Cornell Avenue, 
and also leases classroom space in a building on 54th Street. Five floors of 
the ten-story building at 5401 South Cornell Avenue provide space for 
administrative and faculty offices, library, dining and lounge facilities, 
meeting rooms, and audio- visual laboratory and classrooms. One floor of 
the building at 5326 South Cornell Avenue provide additional faculty 
office and classroom facilities. In addition. Catholic Theological Union 
rents classroom space with the Chicago Sinai Congregation on 54th Street. 

Five floors of living quarters for some of the religious communities of 
men are located at 5401 South Cornell Avenue, and four floors of quarters 
for additional students are in building at 5326 South Cornell Avenue. 


The Catholic Theological Union Library contains 105,000 volumes, 
providing resources for study and research by students and faculty 
members. It currently receives over 540 periodicals. In addition to the 
general theological holdings, the library has special collections in mission 
studies, history of religions, and homiletics. 

The Association of Chicago Theological Schools' libraries, one of the 
largest theological bibliographical resources in the Western hemisphere, 
consisting of more than 1,200,000 volumes in theology and allied fields, 
are available to students enrolled in CTU. A courier service circulates 
books and periodicals for inter-library loans. 

Membership in the Association of Chicago Theological Schools, the 
Illinois Library Computer System Organization, and the Illinois Regional 
Library System, and the On-line Catalog Library Cooperative, allows 
library patrons access to other library resources in the city of Chicago, and 
the state of Illinois, and the rest of the nation. 



From its earliest days, Chicago has been a major cosmopoUtan center, 
with its many neighborhoods representing a wide variety of racial and 
ethnic groups, as well as a broad spectrum of cultural and religious 

In recent years, Chicago has also become one of the largest centers of 
theological education in the world. Its twelve seminaries, with over three 
thousand students and three hundred faculty, make Chicago an 
unequalled resource for the study of theology and ministry. 

Catholic Theological Union enjoys a variety of collaborative relation- 
ships with the other theological institutions of the city, through two 
distinctive but interlocking consortia. 

The school works especially closely with four other institutions in Hyde 
Park, who together form the Committee on Academic Cooperation in 
Hyde Park. The other institutions are the Chicago Theological Seminary 
(United Church of Christ), Lutheran School of Theology, Mead- 
ville/Lombard Theological School (Unitarian/Universalist Association), 
and McCormick Theological Seminary (Presbyterian Church, USA). The 
Committee works to develop coordinated and joint programming as well as 
other academic services to students and faculty. Noteworthy among those 
efforts are the Ecumenical Hispanic Resources Committee, which coor- 
dinates resources for theological education for the Hispanic communities, 
and the Hyde Park Ecumenical Project, an ongoing interfaculty colloquy. 

The Association of Chicago Theological Schools represents another 
form of collaboration. Its membership includes the five Hyde Park schools; 
Bethany Theological Seminary (Church of the Brethren) and Northern 
Baptist Theological Seminary, both located in the western suburbs; and 
five northside schools, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary (United 
Methodist), North Park Theological Seminary (Evangelical Covenant), 
Saint Mary of the Lake Seminary (Roman Catholic), Seabury-Western 
Theological Seminary (Episcopal), and Trinity-Evangelical Divinity 
School (Evangelical Free Church). The Association fosters student cross- 
registration, coordination of library access and acquisitions, faculty 
discussion, and communication among the schools. It offers to the 3500 
students in its twelve schools more than one thousand courses annually and 
library collections in excess of 1.2 million volumes, with nearly five 
thousand currently received periodical subscriptions. Further information 
of the Association may be found in the current edition of its An- 

The participating institutions in each of these arrangements maintain 
educational autonomy and grant their own degrees. Each school also 
preserves its confessional identity and theological traditions. Catholic 
Theological Union's participation follows the guidelines set down in the 
Ecumenical Director of the Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity and 
in the Program of Priestly Formation of the National Conference in 
Catholic Bishops. 

Students may enroll in courses in any of these twelve schools without 
additional tuition or registration charge upon approval of their academic 
advisor and the Registrar. They enjoy library privileges in all these schools 
as well without additional charge. 


Catholic Theological Union is located near the campus of the University 
of Chicago, one of the great research institutions in the world. Its Divinity 
School is renowned for historical research and the preparation of teaching 

A special plan of biregistration permits its students to register for courses 
in the University at a substantial reduction of tuition. 

By special arrangement, certain M.Div. students may pursue a coor- 
dinated sequence of study whereby they may receive the M.Div. degree 
from Catholic Theological Union and the Ph.D. degree thereafter from 
the University of Chicago's Divinity School. Details on this arrangement 
are found on p. 31 of these announcements. 


Catholic Theological Union is a founding member of the Urban 
Academy in Chicago, an interfaith, interracial training center which 
promotes the public ministry of religious institutions. The Academy 


provides seminars, workshops and internships for students exploring 
various aspects of ministry in the urban setting, as well as shorter urban 
"plunges" to acquaint students with specific problems in the city. 

Courses offered by the Urban Academy may receive academic credit. 
Further information on these courses may be received from the Registrar's 

The Executive Director of the Academy is the Rev. Donna Schaper. Its 
offices are located at 4800 North Broadway. 


The Jewish Chautauqua Society established a resident lectureship in 
Judaism at Catholic Theological Union in 1968, for the purpose of 
providing offerings in Jewish studies in the curriculum. Hayim Goren 
Perelmuter, Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation K.A.M. Isaiah Israel and 
past President of the Chicago Board of Rabbis, has served as Chautauqua 
Professor of Jewish Studies at Catholic Theological Union under this 
endowment since 1968. 

The Northern Province of the Society of the Divine Word established the 
Divine Word Scholar in Residence in 1976 to bring qualified persons from 
the Third World to lecture at Catholic Theological Union. These lectures 
offer courses for one or more courses during the academic year. Other 
participating communities at Catholic Theological Union have 
periodically endowed visiting lectureships to enrich the offerings in the 
school's curriculum. 


The National Organization for the Continuing Education of Roman 
Catholic Clergy (NOCERCC) is an independent service organization 
serving continuing education directors and formation directors of dioceses 
and religious communities. Full membership is open to dioceses and 
religious provinces in the United States. Affiliate members include 
agencies, universities, and other institutions which offer services for the on- 
going growth of priests. Affiliate membership is also open to dioceses and 
religious provinces outside the USA. At present there are 231 full members 
and 67 affiliate members. 

NOCERCC was founded in 1972, and is served by an elected President, 
twelve Board Members representing the thirteen Episcopal Regions, and 2 
religious. Services include: a bi-monthly newsletter, an annual convention, 
in-service training at regional meetings, task force reports on subjects 
touching continuing education and priestly growth, conventions of pastors 
held regionally which promote leadership skills, and training for directors 
and teams who minister to priests. NOCERCC seeks to support a hoHstic 
approach to continuing education, which includes not only theological 
renewal and growth but personal and spiritual growth and greater ef- 
fectiveness in pastoral skills. 


The national office of NOCERCC is located at Catholic Thelogical 
Union, and the Rev. Jerome Thompson serves as its Executive Director. 


STAUROS International is an ecumenical, international, non-profit 
association which promotes studies and programs on specific areas of 
human suffering from a religious point of view, particularly, but not 
exclusively, from a Christian viewpoint. 

STAUROS was founded in 1972. The central international office is 
located in Louvain, Belgium, with other offices established in Spain, Italy 
and Northern Europe. The U.S. office was located at Catholic Theological 
Union in 1981. 

STAUROS activities include: publication of a bi-monthly Notebook 
which presents articles and resource material on suffering drawn from 
Scripture, theology, other disciplines and personal histories. It produces a 
specialized bibliography on publications (English and European) from 
different disciplines on suffering, issues scholarly Bulletins, conducts 
International and National Congresses and Symposiums, promotes and 
supports writings which advance its purposes, and conduct workshops and 
retreats on suffering and the mystery of Redemption. 

Rev. Flavian Dougherty, C.P. is Executive Director of the U.S. 
STAUROS Office. 


Fees and Financial Aid 

All tuition and fees are subject to annual review and change. Current 
rates for tuition and other fees can be found in an insert appended to the 
A nnouncements. 


Payment of tuition and fees is due within the first thirty days of each 
quarter. Late payment will be subject to a 1% penalty per month on the 
unpaid balance. Students may request special payment plans and must 
contact the Comptroller to make these arrangements at the start of each 
quarter. These special payment plans must be approved in writing. 
Students with outstanding bills will be permitted to register for the 
following quarter on a conditional basis only. Catholic Theological Union 
reserves the right to withhold registration, library privileges, transfer of 
credits, diplomas and transcripts until all charges and penalties have been 
paid in full. In the event that full collection cannot be made within a 
reasonable amount of time, Catholic Theological Union will make use of 
legal collection procedures. The student will be responsible for the ad- 
ditional expenses entailed in the use of these procedures. 


To withdraw from courses, students must follow the procedures as 
outlined by the Registrar's Office. Refunds are available according to the 
following schedule: 

within the first week of each quarter full refund

within the third week of each quarter 6097o refund 

within the fourth week of each quarter 409/o refund 

within the fifth week of each quarter 15^0 refund 

after the fifth week of each quarter no refund 


Since the theological education of the majority of students at Catholic 
Theological Union is financed in full from funds of the participating 
communities, resources for financial aid are quite limited. The school will 
attempt, however, to provide some aid to a limited number of students. 
Returning students wishing to apply for aid should file an application for 
financial aid with the Dean of Students and Community Services prior to 
May 15th. Matriculating students wishing to apply for aid should file an 
application with the Dean of Students and Community Services 60 days 
prior to the beginning of the quarter. 


Student Life 

The Dean of Students and Community Services is the official 
representative of the administration for matters of student Hfe at Catholic 
Theological Union. The Dean of Students and Community Services v^orks 
closely with the Student Executive Committee and the Formation Council 
and serves as liaison person between these bodies and the administration. 

A wide range of student services are provided including information on 
health insurance, financial aid, job placement, immigration forms, and 
liaison with the University of Chicago library, health service and recreation 
facilicites. These services and others are detailed in the Catholic 
Theological Union Student Handbook, available from the Dean of 
Students and Community Services. 


The basic organ of the student opinion and action at Catholic 
Theological Union is the Student Executive Committee. The SEC coor- 
dinates several areas of student responsibility and participation in Catholic 
Theological Union life. The Student Government places representatives on 
the Catholic Theological Union Senate, and on the principal school 
committees. The Student Executive Committee is headed by a president 
and vice-president elected by the student body. The participating com- 
munities and independent students also place representatives on the SEC. 
The SEC represents the students in matters dealing with the faculty and 
administration, as well as student concerns in the other schools. The SEC 
works closely with the Dean of Students and Community Services. 



The Formation Council is made up of the directors of spiritual for- 
mation of all communities at Catholic Theological Union and the Dean of 
Students. It provides a forum through which the directors share insights 
and experiences regarding spiritual formation. Also, the Formation 
Council agrees upon common policies in matters which affect the religious 
well-being of the student body, and in particular of the students from the 
various religious communities, and makes suitable recommendations to 
the administration. To foster the spiritual development of the students, the 
Formation Council arranges for speakers, conferences, and workshops. 
Liaison with the faculty is effected by the attendance of members at faculty 
meetings and in faculty committees. The Formation Council also places 
two representatives on the Catholic Theological Union Senate. 


The participating communities of Catholic Theological Union generally 
provide services in the area of counselling and spiritual direction for their 
own students. For students who are not members of participating com- 
munities, referral for counselling and spiritual direction is available 
through the office of the Dean of Students and Community Services. 

In matters of academic guidance, each student is assigned an academic 
advisor upon being accepted into the school. 

Each of the participating communities celebrate daily liturgies, to which 
all students are welcome. In addition. Catholic Theological Union 
sponsors occasional liturgies for the entire school. 



Participating communities at the Catholic Theological Union generally 
provide housing for their own students. A limited amount of housing for 
independent students is available at 5326 S. Cornell through the Dean of 
Students and Community Services. If Catholic Theological Union housing 
is unavailable, the Dean of Students and Community Services will help in 
searching for suitable accommodations. Requests for housing assistance 
should be made in writing to the Office of the Dean of Students and 
Community Services as soon as the student has been admitted to the 
school, and no later than thirty days prior to the beginning of the quarter. 

Some of the participating communities of men have their residence in 
the building at 5401 S. Cornell, and from time to time a limited number of 
rooms are available in a given quarter. Inquiries as to availability of these 
rooms can be directed to the Business Office and should be received at 
least 60 days prior to the beginning of each quarter. 

There is a food service, cafeteria style, available to all students and staff. 
Meals may be purchased on a quarterly contract or meal ticket plan. 

Catholic Theological Union housing and food service prices are subject 
to periodic review and change. 


Recreational facilities are available nearby as well as throughout the 
city. The natural beauty of Lake Michigan, a short walk away from school, 
provides a scenic setting for meditation, walking, jogging and bicycling. 
Beaches and parks for sunning, picnicking and general enjoyment are a 
few blocks away. Golfing is available in nearby Jackson Park along with 
tennis facihties, which are also available in Cornell Park two blocks away. 
Indoor facilities in the area include swimming, racquetball, tennis and 
fitness equipment. The University of Chicago athletic facilities are 
available to Catholic Theological Union students for an annual fee. The 
school sponsors intramural volleyball and an annual 10 K Lakefront run. 

General Regulations 


Catholic Theological Union, as a school for ministry in the Roman 
Catholic tradition, aims at providing quality education for persons in- 
terested in ministry. Consequently, all its programs are open to all serious 
and qualified students, male and female, who wish to prepare themselves 
for ministries in this tradition. 

Pre-Theological Study ' 

Pre-theological studies have been the object of extensive study and 
consultation in recent years. Both the Program of Priestly Formation and 


the Association of Theological Schools have outlined in broad, flexible 
guidelines the kinds of foundational understandings the entering student 
ought to have in areas such as human life, culture, religion, and skills of 
thought, communication, and language. Catholic Theological Union 
concurs with these statements and has adapted its admission requirements 
and recommendations to their spirit. 

General Admission Requirements 

The following items are necessary as part of application for general 
admission to Catholic Theological Union: 

— A bachelor's degree or its equivalent from an approved college or 

— A completed application form. The application form may be obtained 
from the Admissions Office. Applications from students of par- 
ticipating communities are due April 15. Applications from all other 
students are due six weeks prior to the quarter in which students plan 
to enter Catholic Theological Union. Late applications will be ac- 
cepted, but no guarantee can be given of admission processing in time 
to begin the following quarter. In such cases, students may be ad- 
mitted conditionally at the discretion of the Committee on Ad- 

— Payment of the matriculation fee to the Admissions Office. 

— Submission of official copies of all college transcripts to the Admissions 

— Letters of Recommendation 


Application for a degree program: three letters. 

— For priests and deacons or members of religious institutes which 
are not participating communities of Catholic Theological 
Union, one of these letters must be from an official represen- 
tative of their diocese or institute. 

— Applicants from Catholic Theological Union's participating 
communities need not submit letters, since permission from a 
participating community constitutes adequate recommendation. 
If the community withdraws its sponsorship, Catholic 
Theological Union reserves the right to request the three letters 
and to reconsider continuation of status. 

Application for special student status: one letter. 

— This letter must come from someone who can testify to the 
applican'ts ability to undertake graduate study in ministerial 
education. Renewal of special student status beyond one year is 
contingent upon the recommendation of instructors at Catholic 
Theological Union. 

Catholic Theological Union reserves the right to require personal in- 
terviews with an admissions officer and to require screening tests of ap- 

Admission to Catholic Theological Union does not constitute admission 
to degree candidacy. Specific requirements for candidacy in the various 
degree programs are listed under the descriptions of those programs 
elsewhere in this catalogue. 


Student Classification 

Students are admitted to degree candidacy after completion of ad- 
mission requirements to the respective degree program and after two 
quarters of study. 

Students not requesting admission to degree programs or the certificate 
program are classified as special students and may hold this status on a one 
year, renewable basis. 

Students enrolling for at least nine hours per quarter are classified as 
full-time students. All others are part-time students. 


Registration takes place in advance of the quarter on the dates an- 
nounced in the academic calendar. Late registration is allowed on the 
dates so designated in the calendar. Registration after these dates cannot 
be guaranteed and must be accompanied by a late registration fee of 


Changes in Registration 

Changes in registration are allowed through the first week of the 
quarter. Thereafter the course will appear on the transcript with a grade 
or designation of withdrawal. 

Class Schedule and Course Load 

Catholic Theological Union operates on the quarter system, with three 
eleven- week quarters per year. Most courses are offered for three quarter 
credit hours, and meet one hundred fifty minutes per week for ten weeks, 
with the eleventh week for study and examinations. Classes are scheduled 
Monday through Thursday during the day, with evening courses and some 
weekend intensives also being offered. 

Course offerings are arranged so that one may pursue an M.T.S. or 
M.A. degree in most areas of concentration completely by means of 
evening courses. The sequence of threse courses is scheduled using a two- 
year cycle. 

The normal course load is four courses (twelve credit hours) per quarter. 
Students may register for an additional course with the permission of their 
academic advisor. 

Grading and Standards of Progress 

Grades are given at the end of each quarter and published by the 
Registrar. The student's academic advisor keeps a progressive checklist of 
regular advancement toward completion of hour and area requirements. 

Catholic Theological Union uses the letter grade system, and also the 
pass-fail system for some courses. Grades are given and computed ac- 
cording to the following schedule: 

four quality points 
three quality points 
two quality points 
one quality point 
no quality points 


= Excellent 


= Good 


= Fair 


= Poor 


= Failure 


= Pass 


= Withdrew passing 


= Withdrew failing 


= Incomplete 

PI = Permanent Incomplete 

Students must have a minimum 3.0 cumulative quality point average in 
a degree program in order to graduate. Students falling below this 
cumulative average for two consecutive quarters are subject to probation. 
Students failing to show improvement are subject to dismissal unless there 
are extenuating circumstances. 

Catholic Theological Union reserves the right to dismiss students whose 
academic progress or whose adjustment to the school is unsatisfactory. 


Students dismissed for poor scholarship cannot be readmitted to the degree 


Students may withdraw from any course up to the end of the seventh 
week of the quarter if permission of their advisor is obtained. They must 
follow the procedures outlined by the Registrar's Office. The grade "WP" 
or "WF" will be entered on their transcript for courses from which they 
have withdrawn. 


Instructors may allow students an extension of time to complete 
coursework up to the end of the fifth week of the next quarter. If work is 
not completed by that time, the instructor will award either an "F" or a 
"PI" for the course. In those instances, no credit will be given for the 
course. The course may be repeated, provided that the student registers 
and pays tuition according to the normal procedures of the school. 


No credit is given for a course in which a student received an 'T". If the 
course is required, it must be successfully completed before taking courses 
for which it is a prerequisite or before graduation. 

Transfer of Credit 

Previously earned graduate credit in theology may be transferred to 
Catholic Theological Union. Ordinarily, no more than nine hours may be 
transferred into M.A. and M.T.S. programs. No credits from courses 
graded below "C" can be transferred. These credits will be recognized only 
after the student has completed successfully one year of academic work at 
Catholic Theological Union. Requests for transfer of credit are to be 
addressed to the Office of the Dean. 

Advanced Standing 

Students entering M.Div. and M.T.S. programs may petition to receive 
advanced standing for previous work done in foundational areas. If the 
petition is granted, hours in those foundational areas then become elec- 
tive. Petitions for advanced standing are to be directed to the Office of the 
Dean after admission to Catholic Theological Union. 

Credit by Examination 

Credit by examination may be sought in many foundational areas and in 
select advanced areas in the M.Div. and M.T.S. programs. Procedures for 
seeking credit by examination are outlined in the M.T.S. and M.Div. 


Credit by Cross-Registration 

Students enrolled at Catholic Theological Union enjoy the possibility of 
enrolling in a number of other Chicago theological schools. They may 
enroll (at no additional tuition charge) at any of the other eleven member 
schools of the Association of Chicago Theological Schools (Bethany 
Theological Seminary, Chicago Theological Seminary, Garrett- 
Evangelical Theological Seminary, Lutheran School of Theology, Mc- 
Cormick Theological Seminary, Meadville/Lombard Theological School, 
North Park Theological Seminary, Northern Baptist Theological 
Seminary, St. Mary of the Lake Seminary, Seabury-Western Theological 
Seminary, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Students of Catholic 
Theological Union may also enroll in the Spertus College of Judaica.) 

Catholic Theological Union enjoys a relationship whereby its students 
may also enroll in courses at the University of Chicago with significant 
reduction in tuition. Details may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 

Credit for courses taken in the schools mentioned above may be applied 
toward Catholic Theological Union degree requirements. Up to one- third 
of a student's work may be done in these other schools, and by special 
arrangement this may be increased to one-half. 


Academic Programs 

The Catholic Theological Union Curriculum 

Catholic Theological Union's stated purpose is to be a school for 
ministry, preparing persons to minister in the Roman Catholic tradition. 
First and foremost this means graduate theological education and 
ministerial preparation for the priesthood. It also includes preparation for 
the variety of ministries now already part of, and still emerging within the 
Roman Catholic Church. 

As a school for ministry, its curricular model is one of compentency- 
based education, committed to academic and professional excellence. For 
Catholic Theological Union, compentency-based education means: 

— a student-centered (rather than content-centered) educational 
process aiming at the integration of the student's knowledge and 
experience; ; 

— the development within the student of a grasp of the Catholic 
religious heritage; 

— an adequate understanding of a variety of frameworks and 
methodologies for interpreting that heritage; 

— an increasing ability to communicate that heritage effectively in 
varying ministerial contexts. 

This educational process is broadened by the larger awareness of the 
cultural pluralism of the contemporary world, provided by Catholic 


Theological Union's international student body and program of World 
Mission. It takes place within the ecumenical context of the Association of 
Chicago Theological Schools. The process is strengthened by the school's 
tradition of critical inquiry and broad humanistic study. 

More specific curricular objectives are given with each of the degree 

Aim of the Program 

Catholic Theological Union's Master of Divinity degree is a graduate 
professional program. The M.Div. degree attests that its bearer has 
achieved a level of competency and proficiency in selected areas and skills 
to be ordained priest in the Roman Catholic Church. 

The M.Div. program combines theological education, guided ministerial 
experience, and structures for integrative reflection. As the first 
professional degree for candidates for the priesthood, its aim is generalist 
in nature, while allowing for some specialization within its broad 
framework. It is concerned not only with the appropriation of the Catholic 
tradition, but also its effective communication. It seeks to prepare can- 
didates for leadership in a pluralist world in a variety of ministerial 

The M.Div. program seeks to implement faithfully the guidelines of the 
1981 Program of Priestly Formation of the National Conference of 
Catholic Bishops. 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements outlined above, the 
following requirements are normally prerequisite for admission to the 
M.Div. program: 

— fifteen semester hours of philosophy. These should provide adequate 
exposure to the major historical periods of philosophical thought. 
Other recommended areas are philosophical anthropology, 
epistemology, and metaphysics. 

— three semester hours in sociology. 

— six semester hours in psychology. Recommended are experimental 
psychology and personality theory. 

— Students intending to come to Catholic Theoloigical Union would be 
well advised to consider other areas important for ministry: e.g., the 
classical roots of their own cultures and traditions, languages such as 
Latin and Greek, and skills such as speech and communication arts. 

Program Requirements 

The M.Div. consists of 135 quarter credit hours and the M.Div. 
Professional Resume. These can ordinarily be completed in eleven 
quarters of work, and must be completed within seven years. M.Div. 
candidates must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade average. Further 
regulations may be found in the M.Div. Manual.

The M.Div. Professional Resume 

The M.Div. Professional Resume is an important part of the com- 
petency-based model of preparation for ministry. It is a progressively 
completed dossier of materials attesting to the ministerial skills and 
competencies which the student has attained. Its cumulative character 
seeks to aid the student in the personal integration of knowledge and skills, 
as well as the effective communication of what has been experienced and 
learned. Completion of the Professional Resume marks the competition of 
the M.Div. program. 

Further information and regulations for the M.Div. Professional 
Resume are contained in the M.Div. Manual. The materials in the Resume 

— A Pastoral Mission Statement 

— Certification in three areas of pastoral competency: 



Pastoral Counseling x 

— Evaluations from ministry supervisors 

— A case history from a situation in which the student has served 

— Transcript of grades and courses completed 

— Other materials the student may wish to include, for example, 
evaluations from people served in ministry. 

Language Requirement 

There is no language requirement as such for the M.Div. degree. 
However, language competency may be required for admission to some 


Administration and Further Regulations 

The M.Div. program is administered by Rev. John Paul Szura, O.S.A., 
M.Div. Director, to whom inquiries should be addressed. Regulations and 
procedures regarding the M.Div. degree are contained in the M.Div. 


Aim of the Program 

The purpose of Catholic Theological Union's program for the Master of 
Arts in Theology is multidimensional. The program is designed, within the 
resources of Catholic Theological Union, the Association of Chicago 
Theological Schools and the Divinity School of the University of Chicago, 
to provide the theological background for those who wish: to prepare for 
entrance into a doctoral program in theology; to teach religion at a 
secondary or college level; to develop a basic competence in the area of 
theological studies though their principal specialization lies elsewhere. 

The M.A. program is marked by flexibility, allowing for a wide variety 
of individually tailored programs. When they apply for admission to the 
program, normally by the middle of the quarter preceding admission, the 
candidates choose the objective(s) which best meet their needs. Before 
registering for M.A. course work they meet with their M.A. board to work 
out the details of a program designed to help achieve the objective(s) 
chosen. The M.A. board will act as an on-going supervisory and con- 
sultative group which will help students evaluate their progress and decide 
on any modifications which might be advisable. 

The M.A. in theology is not routinely granted en route to the M.Div., 
but many be pursued concurrent with the M.Div. It is open to those who 
wish to gain theological background for work other than the priestly 

Once the prerequisites have been met, the M.A. program will usually 
take two years (one year of course work plus the time needed for the thesis 
and the comprehensive examinations). It must be completed within seven 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements, candidates for the 
M.A. in theology must have completed 18 semester hours or 27 quarter 
hours of university or seminary level theology. This latter requirement can 
be fulfilled by study in foundational areas at CTU or by an undergraduate 
major in theology or religious studies from an accredited college, university 
or seminary, provided that the Dean, in consultation with the M.A. 
Director and appropriate faculty members, judges this to be equivalent. 
To enter advanced level courses in the Department of Biblical Literature 
and Languages the M.A. candidates must have taken B 300 and 305 or 
their equivalent; to enter advanced level courses in the Department of 


Historical and Doctrinal Studies they must have completed at least twelve 
quarter hours of historical and doctrinal studies, including six quarter 
hours of church history survey. Other prerequisites for specific areas of 
specialization may be required by the Dean, in consultation with the M.A. 
Director and appropriate faculty members. 

Program Requirements 

The M.A. program requirements consist of courses, language cer- 
tification, comprehensive examinations, and thesis. 

Course Requirements 

Thirty-six quarter hours (12 courses) of course work are required. The 
candidate must maintain a "B" (3.0) average. There will be automatic 
dismissal from the program for any grade below a "C" or for more than 
two "C's". The course work shall be divided as follows: 

1 . Eight advanced level courses in the student's area of specialization 

(e.g., scripture, systematic theology, ethics, etc.) 24 hours 

2. Two advanced level courses in each of two other 

theological disciplines 12 hours 

Up to one- third of the courses may be taken in other approved schools. 
By special arrangement with the M.A. board, this may be increased to 

Comprehensive Examinations 

Part of the requirements for the M.A. in theology is a two-part com- 
prehensive examination in which the candidates are to demonstrate their 
grasp of theological methodologies and content of the disciplines included 
within the scope of their program. The content and approach for which 
the student will be responsible in the comprehensives is determined by 
students and their board of examiners within the general prescriptions of 
the M.A. program. A student may take the comprehensive examination 
two times; upon receipt of a petition from the student, the comprehensive 
board may allow a third attempt. 

As the final requirement for the M.A. in theology, candidates must 
demonstrate the ability to do competent work in their field by writing a 
thesis characterized by research and independent thought. The thesis shall 
be seventy-five to one hundred pages in length and conform to one of the 
manuals of style approved by Catholic Theological Union. 

Language Requirement 

A reading knowledge of one modern foreign language is required for all 
candidates for the M.A. degree. The choice will be limited ordinarily to 
French or German. In addition, those specializing in historical and 
doctrinal studies will be required normally to demonstrate a reading 
knowledge of Latin, and those specializing in scripture will be required to 
demonstrate a reading knowledge of Greek and Hebrew. Language 
competence shall be demonstrated as early as possible within the program. 


Final Recommendation 

The M.A. Director will determine the candidate's cumulative grade, 
based on course work (one- half), comprehensive examination (one- 
quarter), and thesis (one-quarter). An appropriate recommendation will 
then be made to the Dean and Faculty for the conferring of the degree of 
Master of Arts in Theology. 

Administration and Further Regulations 

The M.A. program is administered by Rev. John T. Pawlikowski, 
O.S.M., M.A. Director. Inquiries concerning the program should be 
directed to his office. Further regulations for the M.A. program are 
contained in the M.A. Manual. 


Aim of the Program 

The Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S.) aims to provide the students 
with a general theological understanding as a context within which they 
will also develop selected pastoral skills and competencies. The degree 
program offers two distinct tracks for students, the choice of one 
dependent upon student needs. Building upon previous ministerial ex- 
perience. Track I of the M.T.S. provides (1) education in the foundational 
areas of theological disciplines; (2) a focus for developing selected pastoral 
skills; (3) an integration of these skills within the framework of a general 
theological understanding. 

Track I of the M.T.S. is intended for persons who have had some 
ministerial experience and who wish to prepare for new ministries or to 
enhance their effectiveness in their current ministry. Concretely Track I of 
the M.T.S. is envisioned for sisters, brothers, deacons, lay persons, or 
priests who wish an additional theological focus. 

Track II of the M.T.S. is intended for persons who have had no 
supervised ministerial experience and who seek an education in the 
theological disciplines with a focus toward developing and integrating 
pastoral skills for ministry. 

While the M.T.S. draws upon the same resources as do the M.A. and 
M.Div. degrees, and shares aspects of their objectives and design, it is 
nonetheless distinct in its focus and relationship to these programs. 

As a degree which provides not only general theological understanding 
but also specific ministerial skills and competencies, the M.T.S. is basically 
different in orientation from the research M.A. degree, and so cannot be 
pursued concurrently with the M.A. degree. 

The M.T.S. represents a more limited range of pastoral skills for 
ministry than does the generalist M.Div. degree. For that reason, it does 
not qualify the candidate for ordination to priesthood in the Roman 
Catholic Church. Work done in the M.T.S. program, however, can be 
applied toward the M.Div. degree, although the two programs cannot be 
pursued concurrently. 


Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admissions requirements, at least three years 
of experience involving the communication of religious values to others are 
also required. Some background in theology, philosophy, psychology, 
sociology and religious studies is recommended; the adequacy of this 
background will be determined according to the student's specific 

Program Requirements 

The equivalent of two full-time academic years (72 quarter credit hours) 
is required for the M.T.S. degree. Advanced standing and transfer of 
credit may be granted for previous theological study, to be applied to the 
foundational areas of the M.T.S. Decisions on advanced standing and 
transfer of credit are based upon transcript evaluation and student in- 
terview. Candidates must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade average. The 
program must be completed within seven years. 

Track I 

Specific hour requirements fall into three areas: foundational, 
theological/pastoral, and integrative areas. 

Foundational Areas: 21 hours I 

The foundational areas are meant to provide some grounding in 
the major theological disciplines. They consist of twenty-one hours. 
Equivalency may be granted for this work if similar work has been 
done on an advanced level (i.e., upper level college or at another 
theological school). Work in the foundational areas must be com- 
pleted during the first year of residency. The foundational areas 

Introduction to the Old Testament 3 hours 

Introduction to the New Testament 3 hours 

History of Early Christianity 3 hours 

Introduction to Theology 3 hours 

Introduction to Christian Ethics 3 hours 

Introduction to Social Ethics 3 hours 

Sacraments: Theology and Celebration 3 hours 

Theological/ Pastoral A reas: 42 hours 

The theological/pastoral areas provide work in selected areas of 
pastoral skills within the context of further theological un- 
derstanding. Forty- two hours are required in this area, to be 
distributed in the following manner: 

Systematic Theology (God, Christ, ^' 

Church, Eucharist, Eschatology) 6 hours 

Scripture 6 hours 

Area of Concentration 18 hours 

Electives 12 hours 


Integrative A reas: 9 hours 

Nine hours are required in the integrative area. Three of these 
hours are to be completed in the first year of residency, ordinarily 
through the M.T.S. Colloquium. These hours are meant to aid the 
candidates in reflecting upon their previous ministerial experience. 

Three hours are to be done in the second year, to serve as a focus 
for a fuller integration of pastoral skills, theological reflection and 
ministerial experience. 

The final three hours are granted for the M.T.S. project, which is 
oriented to the candidate's projected area of pastoral ministry and is 
completed under the supervision of faculty in the appropriate area. 
The project may be done in conjunction with the second integrating 

Since the M.T.S. program allows for a great deal of individualization, 
programs for M.T.S. students will be developed in consultation with the 
student and appropriate faculty in the projected areas of pastoral skill. 

Track II 

Specific hour requirements fall into three areas: foundational, 
theological/pastoral, and integrative areas. 

Foundational Areas: 21 hours 

The foundational areas are meant to provide some grounding in 
the major theological disciplines. They consist of twenty-one hours. 
Equivalency may be granted for this work if similar work has been 
done on an advanced level (i.e., upper level college or at another 
theological school). Work in the foundational areas must be com- 
pleted during the first year of residency. The foundational areas

Introduction to Social Ethics 3 hours 

Sacraments: Theology and Celebration 3 hours 

Theological/ Pastoral A reas: 39 hours 

The theological/pastoral areas provide work in selected areas of 
pastoral skills within the context of further theological un- 
derstanding. Thirty-nine hours are required in this area, to be 
distributed in the following manner: 

Systematic Theology 

9 Hours 

(God, Christology, Ecclesiology) 


3 hours

Area of Concentration 

18 hours 


3 hours 


Integrative Areas: 12 hours 

Twelve hours are required in the integrative area. Nine of these 
hours are to be completed in the first year of residency, ordinarily 
through the Basic Ministry Practicum. These hours are meant to aid 
the candidates in reflecting upon their ministerial experience with 
supervisor and theological reflection seminar groups. 

The final three hours are granted for the M.T.S. project, which is 
oriented to the candidate's projected area of pastoral ministry and is 
completed under the supervision of faculty in the appropriate area. 

Language Requirement 

There are no language requirements as such for the M.T.S. , although 
language competencies may be required for entry into certain courses. 


The M.T.S. Program is directed and administered by Rev. Francis S. 
Tebbe, O.F.M. Further regulations for the M.T.S. program are found in 
the M.T.S. Manual. 


By a special arrangement with the University of Chicago, select M.Div. 
students from Catholic Theological Union may pursue a coordinated 
sequence of programs leading to the M.Div. degree at Catholic 
Theological Union and the Ph.D. degree at the University of Chicago 
Divinity School. 

Upon receiving written approval of the Academic Dean of Catholic 
Thelogical Union, the student may enter this sequence. While pursuing 
the regular course of study in the M.Div. program, the student prepares 
for the six Certifying Examinations which constitute the preliminary phase 
of doctoral study at the University. The Certifying Examinations cover the 
following areas: 

I. Regligious Tradition in Western Culture 

A. Sacred Scriptures of Judaism, Christianity, Islam 

B. Western Religious Traditions to 1500 

C. Religion in the West, 1500-1900 

II. Religion in the Modern World 

A. Religion and Modern Thought 

B. Religious Communities 

C. The Study of Religion 

Application for the Ph.D. program includes completing at least two 
quarters of bi-registration at the University, enrolling in at least two 400- 
level courses at the University of Chicago Divinity School; successful 
completion of the six Certifying Examinations; successful completion of a 
French or German foreign language examination, administered either by 
the University of Chicago or the Educational Testing Service. 


M.Div. students may apply for the Ph.D. program when they have 
completed the requirements above and have completed two years of the 
M.Div. program. Application to the Ph.D. program does not constitute 
admission. Applications from this sequence will be considered along with 
other applications to the Ph.D. programs in the Divinity School. If ac- 
cepted, the student matriculates into the Ph.D. program within one year, 
and takes at least two courses in that program thereafter until admitted to 
Ph.D. candidacy. If rejected, the student may apply for a terminal M.A. 
in the University, if the regular curricular and financial obligations are 

Students must complete the M.Div. before the Ph.D. can be awarded. 
When the M.Div. degree has been awarded, the student may petition that 
the Ph.D. be awarded with more than nine but fewer than the eighteen 
courses normally required beyond the master's level. The student may also 
petition to have a faculty member from Catholic Theological Union serve 
as an additional examiner in the oral portion of the Qualifying 
Examinations, and also to serve as a member of the dissertation reading 

Students may apply credit received in University courses to the M.Div. 
degree in the usual arrangement with neighboring institutions. Successful 
completion of the Certifying Examinations may be substituted for the 
Pastoral Mission Statement in the M.Div. Resume. Choice of elective 
courses and the field of doctoral study may make some adjustment in 
M.Div. course distribution requirements plausible. In such cases, the 
student may petition the M.Div. Director for such adjustments. These can 
be made by the M.Div. Director after consultation with the Dean and 
appropriate departments. 

Further details on this sequence may be obtained from the Dean's 
Office. More information on Ph.D. programs at the University of Chicago 
Divinity School may be found in the current issue of its Announcements. 


The World Mission Program at Catholic Theological Union has been 
developed to allow students to choose a specific mission focus in any of the 
various degree programs offered by the school, namely, M.Div., M.A., 
and M.T.S., as well as to meet the needs of furloughed and returned 
missionaries who come to the school for one or more terms of continuing 
education. It also challenges all theological education at Catholic 
Theological Union with the reality of cultural and religious pluralism and 
the awareness of an existing global Church. 

For the World Mission of the Church has entered a new era. The Church 
today must seek to be faithful to the mission of Christ in the midst of vast 
social and economic changes among the peoples of the world who struggle 
nevertheless to remain faithful to their own cultural and religious heritage. 
The mission of the Church needs apostles who are persons of dialogue — 
who are able to live maturely between different cultural worlds; who seek 
not only to give but to receive, not only to lead but to assist; who call to 
conversion, but are also ready to undergo conversion; who, in inviting all 
peoples to the community of those who profess Jesus as their Savior, want 


to respect other churches and other religions in their own proper 
development. With such apostles the Church will become truly ecumenical 
and will become a sign and instrument of reconciliation and peace in 
Christ Jesus. 

It is with this awareness that Catholic Theological Union has shaped its 
World Mission Program. It has organized biblical, historical, systematic, 
and ethical courses with mission as their focus and/or content. It has 
created an Intensive to help people prepare for Cross-Cultural Ministry 
and a Mission Integration Seminar to aid returned missionaries process 
their experience abroad and their reentry. It has sought out pastoral 
placements most suitable for reflection on the Church's mission. 

The World Mission Program at Catholic Theological Union is super- 
vised and developed by the interdepartmental Committee on World 
Mission, In this they are aided by annual meetings of the Mission Advisory 
Council, which represents the interests of the school's various con- 

All degree programs are available with a mission specialization. The 
requirements for each are as follows: 

Master of Divinity in Theology with Mission Specialization 

Requirements are the same as those listed for the M.Div. degree 
above, with the following specifications: 

— forty-five hours (fifteen courses) in the M.Div. Program must be 
taken with Mission Specialization. These must ordinarily include 
1-460: Training for Cross-Cultural Ministry. 

— an Overseas Training Program approved by Catholic Theological 
Union may be substituted for the Advanced Ministry Practicum. 
For students taking the Practicum it is to be done with cross- 
cultural specialization. 

Master of Arts in Theology 

Requirements are the same as those listed for the M.A. above. The 
eight advanced level courses taken as specialization are in the area of 
Mission Specializaton. 

Master of Theological Studies 

Requirements are the same as those listed for the M.T.S. above. The 
area of concentration must be in Mission Specialization. 

The courses offered by Catholic Theological Union which are con- 
sidered Mission Specialization are listed each year and are available on 

Catholic Theological Union carries out its World Mission Program in 
cooperation with the Association of Chicago Theological Schools which 
guarantees a broad theological and ecumenical environment. Together 
the schools participate in planning and sponsoring various workshops and 
meetings on current mission and international problems as well as the 
annual World Mission Institute.

The Bible is not just a collection of ancient writings, but a major 
component in the contemporary formation of faith, a part of the living 
process of communication and interpretation of divine revelation. For this 
reason, students pursuing the Master of Divinity degree or other degrees 
are able to specialize in Bible with a view to developing a biblical approach 
in spirituality and ministry. 

Master of Divinity with Bible Specialization 

General biblical requirements are the same as those listed for the 
M.Div. degree above. In addition, specialization in the biblical field 
is acquired as follows: 

— With advisement from the department, at least three of the 
general electives are to be taken in the biblical field, preferably on 
the 500 level. 

— Two other supporting courses from the general M.Div. 
curriculum are to be taken with projects in the biblical dimensions 
of the area of study . 

— Participation in either the Spring or Fall Israel Study program is 
normally required as an integral part of the M.Div. specialization. 

— With advisement from the department, students are strongly 
urged to include the following among their biblical courses: 

a) A course in a biblical language. 

b) A course in Rabbinic Judaism. 

— Through appropriate advisement, the Advanced Ministry 
Practicum will be so structured that the Bible can be used in an 
explicit way, e.g. , in preaching or teaching ministries. 

Other Programs 

The Master of Arts in Theology, the Master of Theological Studies, and 
the Certificate in Pastoral Studies may also be taken with concentration in 
Bible. For details, see explanations under these degree programs. 


Word and Worship is a concentration in preaching and pastoral liturgy 
within the M.Div., M.T.S., and Certificate programs. It seeks to combine 
a theological understanding of preaching and liturgy with skills both in 
exercising these ministries and in preparing others for them. It enables the 
student to integrate the study and practice of liturgy and preaching within 
a larger context of theology and pastoral care. 

Individual students work with a word/worship advisor to plan the 
specific content of their program in keeping with their background and 
future ministerial goals. In addition to Catholic Theological Union's 
course offerings, students working in Word and Worship programs have 
access to a wide variety of course offerings in preaching and liturgy in

program options and the word/worship requirements are as follows: 

Master of Divinity 

with Word and Worship Specialization 

General requirements are the same as those listed above for the M.Div. 
program. These include required courses in liturgy, sacraments, 
sacramental law and preaching as well as the required first competencies 
in word and worship. 

Specialization in Word and Worship is achieved by these further 
specifications of the regular M.Div. requirements:

the word/worship area. 

— In two other supporting courses students are to relate their course 
work to word/worship. 

— A word/worship placement is to be chosen for the advanced ministry 
practicum required of all M.Div. students. This practicum, in 
conjunction with the above courses, helps students acquire the 
advanced competencies in word and worship.

The Hispanic Ministries Program provides theological education 
through courses which are historically, culturally, and religiously 
grounded in the Hispanic context and experience. It supports these efforts 
with additional educational opportunities such as seminars, workshops, 
community dialogue and other special events. The program is developed 
in cooperation with Ecumenical Hispanic Resources Committee of the 
Committee on Academic Cooperation in Hyde Park and with other centers 
in the Chicago area. 

Begun in 1982, the Hispanic Ministries Program is directed toward 
hispanic and non-Hispanic persons interested in ministry with Hispanic 
communities. The program provides contact with the Hispanic experience 
and tradition of the Catholic Church in the United States. Courses are 
open to all students. 

Annual lists of courses and further details on the program may be had 
by contacting the Director of the Hispanic Ministries Program, Dr. Isidro 
Lucas, or the Associate Director, Ana Maria Pineda, S.M. 

Aim of the Program 

The aim of the Certificate in Pastoral Study is to provide an opportunity 
to develop a program of study either to enhance one's effectiveness in one's 
current ministry or to prepare for another ministry. It is especially 
designed as a program for continuing education. 


Admission Requirements 

There are no special requirements beyond the general admission 
requirements. Preference is given to persons with experience in ministry, 

Program Requirements 

The Certificate in Pastoral Studies consists of thirty-six quarter hours 
(twelve courses), the equivalent of one year's work at Catholic Theological 
Union. Selection of courses in the Certificate is made on the basis of the 
candidate's interest and need. Candidates may avail themselves of the 
courses offered at Catholic Theological Union including its field programs 
and courses in the Association of Chicago Theological Schools. There is no 
language requirement. 


The Certificate in Pastoral Studies is administered by Rev. Francis S. 
Tebbe, O.F.M., to whom inquiries may be directed.

Emeritus at Cambridge University, at a Catholic Theological Union faculty seminar. 


Educating capable ministers for the present and future Church involves 
not only working with those entering ministry for the first time, but also 
offering opportunities for lifelong professional development for persons 
already engaged in ministry. Attention also needs to be given to ministry 
education for those laypersons whose primary vocations lie beyond what 
have been thought of traditionally as church vocations. 


A number of different opportunities for continuing education are 
available at Catholic Theological Union: 

1 . The Master of Theological Studies program is designed for persons 
with ministerial experience who wish to prepare for new ministries or 
to enhance their effectiveness in their current work. 

2. The Certificate in Pastoral Studies offers an opportunity to develop 
one's own program of study for personal and professional growth. 

3. The Fall Quarter Israel Study Program is especially designed for the 
continuing education student wishing an experience of studying the 
Bible in context. 

4. The Certificate in Biblical Spirituality is designed for those seeking to 
enrich and integrate their spirituality, ministerial skills, and life 
experience by means of a deeper appreciation of the Bible. The 
program includes the Fall Quarter of study in Israel. 

5. Individualized Sabbatical Quarter(s) Study provides a concentration 
in Bible, Word and Worship, Mission Studies, or Pastoral Ministry. 
Integrative seminars gather sabbatical students to share and reflect 
upon their experiences. 

6. Individuals may study for one year on a credit or non-credit basis for 
personal enrichment. 

Completed work done in Catholic Theological Union's certificate 
programs may be applied toward work in the M.T.S. degree program. 

Further information on continuing education opportunities may be 
obtained from Rev. Francis S. Tebbe, O.F.M., Director. 


A one year certificate program, concentrating upon the Bible, in which 
class lectures, seminar discussion, study and prayer center upon the Bible 
as the common basis of Christian living and Christian mission. During the 
fall quarter the Bible will be explored from the vantage point of the land of 
Israel where the participants will join Catholic Theological Union's Israel 
Study Program. This is followed by a re-entry seminar and retreat in 
Chicago. The winter and spring quarters at Catholic Theological Union 
enable students not only to choose from extensive offerings in the Bible 
department, but also to draw upon biblically related courses in other 
departments. The program blends academic, liturgical and recreational 
facets. With thirty-six credit hours (twelve courses) a Certificate in Biblical 
Spirituality is awarded. Students may extend their study at Catholic 
Theological Union for an additional year to earn the degree of Master of 
Theological Studies. The Biblical Spirituality Program is directed by 
Carroll Stuhlmueller, C.P., and Joann Gehling, F.S.P.A. Further in- 
formation may be obtained from their offices. 


Catholic Theological Union offers a number of opportunities for study 
outside the Chicago area and internationally. These include: 


The National Capital Semester program for Seminarians 

Catholic Theological Union participates in the National Capital 
Semester Program for Seminarians (NSCC), directed by Wesley 
Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C. Students spend a semester 
focusing upon public policy and theology in Washington, through study, 
reflection, direct political interaction, and encounter with persons in- 
volved in the political process. 

Further details may be obtained from the M.Div. Director, who also 
administers the program. 

United Nations and World Faiths

Further details may be obtained from the M.Div. Director. 

Louvain Study Program 

Students from Catholic Theological Union may spend one or two 
semesters studying in the English-speaking section of the Theological 
Faculty of the Katholieke Universiteit te Leuven in Belgium. 

Further details may be obtained from the Office of the Dean. 

Sheptytsky Institute in Eastern Christian Studies at Mt. Tabor 

Catholic Theological Union offers students the opportunity to integrate 
study of the theology, liturgy, and spirituality of the Christian East with a 
lived experience of what Eastern Christians look upon as the summit of 
their spiritual tradition, namely monasticism. This is achieved through 
Catholic Theological Union's Sheptytsky Institute at Mt. Tabor, an annual 
summer intensive at Holy Transfiguration Monastery in California. 

Students can earn six quarter credits applicable to M.Div., M.A. and 
M.T.S. requirements. The summer intensive normally consists of a 
monthlong stay at the Ukrainian Catholic Monastery of the Holy Tran- 
sguration (Mt. Tabor) in Redwood Valley, California, where participants 
enter as fully as possible into the life of the monks. This includes adherence 
to the full schedule of personal prayer and fasting, as well as participation 
in four to five hours of liturgy a day. In addition, participants attend two 
three-credit courses in Eastern theology, spirituality and liturgy. A field 
trip to San Francisco is included, with visits to local Eastern parishes, both 
Orthodox and Catholic. At the conclusion of the intensive program, a de- 
briefing seminar is held at a retreat center near San Francisco, so as to 
facilitate re-entry into "the world" from the monastic experience. 


Holy Transfiguration Monastery is located two and one-half hours north of 
San Francisco in the scenic Coastal Range mountains of Northern 
California. It is the home of a dozen monks and is gaining a reputation as a 
center for authentically Eastern spirituality throughout North America. 
Worship is conducted in English, following the Byzantine-Ukrainian 
usage. While Mt. Tabor is a men's monastery, both men and women are 
welcome in the summer intensive of the Sheptytsky Institute. 

The program is named after the Servant of God Metropolitan Andrey 
Sheptytsky ( + 1944), primate of the Ukrainian Catholic Church, pioneer 
of East- West ecumenism, and restorer of the pristine heritage of the 
Ukrainian Church. 

The Director of the Sheptytsky Institute in Eastern Christian Studies at 
Mt. Tabor is Fr. Andriy Chirovsky. Further details can be obtained from 
his office. 

Israel Study Programs 

Catholic Theological Union offers two special programs which combine 
scripture study and travel in the biblical lands. 

Each Fall there is a quarter length program involving lectures on 
Scripture and guided exploration of biblical sites in Greece, Turkey, Israel 
and Egypt. A re-entry seminar is conducted at Catholic Theological Union 
at the conclusion of the program to help participants relate their overseas 
experience to theology, spirituality and ministry. Students may earn up to 
12 quarter hours of credit applicable to M.Div., M.A. and M.T.S. 
requirements. The overseas course work concentrates on the History and 
Archaeology of Israel and on a variety of Old and New Testament 
traditons. The 1987 program will be conducted by Carroll Stuhlmueller, 


C.CP. andjoann Gehling, F.S.P.A.; the 1988 program by Carolyn Osiek, 
R.S.CJ. andjoann Gehling, F.S.P.A. 

Every other Spring Catholic Theological union offers a three week 
intensive in Israel, during the latter part of the quarter. The next program 
will be in the Spring of 1989. For the first seven weeks of the quarter 
students may take at Catholic Theological Union two full quarter scripture 
courses (B400 Pentateuch and B440 Gospel of John) designed to be 
completed during the first seven weeks of the quarter; a third course (B475 
History and Archaeology of Israel) will also run seven weeks and will serve 
as direct preparation for the overseas intensive. During the three weeks in 
Israel students will have guided tours of major biblical sites. Participation 
in the intensive can earn 3 quarter credits; the entire Spring program (the 
three courses plus the intensive) gives 12 quarter credits applicable toward 
degree requirements. 

On both the Fall and Spring programs students are accompanied by 
biblical faculty from Catholic Theological Union; the programs also draw 
on expert resource people overseas. 

The Director of the Israel Study Program is Donald Senior, C.P. Further 
details can be obtained from his office.

W 580: Marriage as Process 

'Love and marriage ... horse and carriage'. To what extent is this feeble, culture-bound metaphor 

detrimental to understanding marriage as a social institution in non-Christian experience? We will look 

across cultures at marriage-as-process, assessing its compatibility with the ideal of Christ. 

Gittins By arrangement; please contact instructor 

as early as possible in the academic year. 
W 582: Calculating Women 

An anthropological study of ambiguity and ambivalence. A reading course on roles and statuses of 
women, assessing cultural and social attitudes to change. Should missionaries work to improve women's 
status, without reference to social structures? Is human dignity a relative concept?
